Board View in Wrike

Table 1. Availability - Legacy plans


All users on all account types can use Board view.

Board view allows you to view all the tasks and task-based custom items in a project, folder, or space in a simple layout, which reflects their status. Tasks and task-based custom items are represented by cards listed under the relevant status.

Within the Board view, you can:

The Board view consists of columns representing different statuses in the current workflow. In each column, there are cards representing tasks and task-based custom items.

Each card is displayed under the relevant status and displays:

  1. Task or task-based item name 1.

  2. Assignee(s) 2.

  3. Subtasks and subitems (which can be clicked and expanded) 3.

  4. Due date 4.

Clicking on a card opens the relevant task or task-based item in Item View which allows you to adjust all its details, add descriptions and comments, share items with teammates, and add approvals and files.


You can choose if you want to view tasks and task-based items which are in subfolders and subprojects of the space, folder, or project you are viewing. Click the three-dot menu in the Board view's upper-right corner and select Tasks from subfolders.


Hide or Show Subtasks

You have the option to expand or collapse the list of subtasks within a task while in Board view. Simply click on the "Hide" or "Show subitems" button located just below the profile image of the task's assignee within the corresponding column of the board view.

  3. Select the Assignee 2 option from the drop down menu that appears.

  4. Select the Collapse all groups 3 option if you want to collapse groups.

Now you can view tasks based on who they are assigned to.
